Parker's ETT is a direct thrust linear motor actuator that is ideally suited to all kinds of linear handling and pick and place applications.
It is a cost effective and energy-efficient alternative to pneumatic cylinders in applications that demand greater flexibility and control. The ETT‘s linear motion is directly generated without the need for mechanical transmission elements like ball screws, toothed belts, and gearboxes.
The tubular motor has two main components; the rod (shaft) and the stator with integrated feedback (body). The shaft is made of a stainless steel tube with built-in high performance neodymium magnets that deliver impressive thrust values up to 2083 N. The main body comprises the stator winding, the feedback electronics, and high performance bearings.
A major benefit of the ETT design is that long and/or heavy duty cycles are possible without the need for additional cooling. The IP67 protection class allows the ETT tubular motor to be used in harsh environmental conditions.
